Frankfurt International School


Recommended Posts

At FIS, our mission informs our actions and shapes our expectations. While academic excellence resides at the center of school life, the arts, sciences, humanities, language learning, life skills, and athletics are within a tight orbit. Our teaching and learning practices are rooted in the International Baccalaureate Programme. It helps students make connections across academic disciplines and challenging them to achieve their highest potential as individuals – and as caring, honorable, ethical, and adaptable global citizens. This world of ours requires intellectual dexterity, independent thinking, unflagging curiosity, social agility, courage, social responsibility, and uncompromising character. Our community is deeply committed to ensuring our young people are so prepared.

With over 50 years of service to the Frankfurt/Rhein-Main area, our reputation is founded on our students' motivation, the skill of our faculty, and unprecedented participation by our parent community. The reflections of our alumni and their parents speak to the quality of those relationships. Our doors are open to you with the assurance we will be at your family's side providing excellence in teaching and learning. Now we need you to join us to make this an even more remarkable place.

Two campuses, more than 50 nationalities, rigorous academics, a variety of performing and visual arts opportunities, and a strong athletics program, are just a few of many attributes that provide students at Frankfurt International School with A World of Opportunities. Our mission is to be the leading, culturally diverse, and family-oriented international school with English as the principal language of instruction. We inspire individuals to develop their intellect, creativity, and character to become independent, adaptable, socially responsible, and internationally-minded citizens by ensuring a dynamic, inquiry-driven education of the highest standard. We believe that:

  • Each person is unique and has equal worth.
  • Education of the highest standard is a shared responsibility of students, family, and school.
  • Expectations that are challenging lead to higher levels of performance and allow us to reach our potential.
  • All people are responsible for their actions.
  • Honesty, integrity, and respect are essential for building trusting relationships.
  • Open-mindedness, empathy, and compassion are essential for living in a diverse community.
  • Leading a healthy and active lifestyle improves the quality of life.
  • Commitment, enthusiasm, and perseverance lead to success.
  • Contributing positively to society and the environment is our shared responsibility.
  • Nurturing curiosity and creativity stimulate exploration and discovery throughout life.
  • Our lives and the life of our community are enriched by diversity.
